A Wild new Pokémon game appears!

Pokémon Black and White is perhaps the best entry in the Pokémon series, and according to a recent episode of Pokémon Smash in Japan, they are about to receive a sequel. In a first ever for the Pokémon games, there will be a direct sequel to the games simply titled Pokémon Black and White 2. The games will be released this June in Japan, and sometime this year everywhere else.

In a strange move from Nintendo, the games are actually not coming out for their newest handheld the 3DS, but for the DS family of systems. Of course the games will be playable on the 3DS because of the backwards compatibility of the system, but it would have been nice to have a shiny new game to look forward to in the 3DS’s library.

Nonetheless, I’m sure the games will be great. I will certainly be putting some money down for a preorder. What do you all want to see in a new Pokémon game. Better online play? More Pokémon to capture? Perhaps a trip back to one of the previous regions? Tell us in the comments!
